Jab Harry Met Sejal is releasing in around 3500 screens (approx.) in India. It has got tremendous amount of shows, ranging from 15-20 shows per theater in multiplexes. The advance booking for this Shah Rukh Khan starrer romantic flick is decent. The bookings for the movie began slowly from Sunday till Wednesday but now, it has picked up pace.
The booking for Friday is so far best compared to Saturday and Sunday. The occupancy is around 30% and most of it has come from metro cities. Mumbai, Delhi, Bengaluru, Chennai, Kolkata are showing a real good response. Mumbai and North will be the crucial contributors for the film.
Moreover, the booking for morning shows is dull but evening and night shows for Friday are around 40-45% which states that the occupancy will rise in some hours.. Being a romantic movie, this scenario is expected to improve and booking percentage will grow.
